Edward Goldenberg Robinson (born Emanuel Goldenberg) was a stage and film actor of Romanian origin. He began his acting career in 1913, made his Broadway debut in 1915, his film debut in 1916 with a minor role that did not credit him, and made his name debut in 1923. Although Robinson had a remarkable career of over 90 films spanning 50 years, he was never nominated for an Academy Award, although in 1973 he was awarded an honorary Oscar. Tragically, he died from cancer just two months before the award ceremony, at the age of 79. Edward G. Robinson was interred in his family mausoleum at Beth-El Cemetery in New York. His Hollywood Walk of Fame star is located at 6235 Hollywood Boulevard.
